Analytics Edge Product Usage Tracking
The Analytics Edge Add-in and Connector products are software packages installed locally on your computer, like Microsoft Excel. They do not have a server-component, and do not share query or data transfer information with any Analytics Edge company computers.
Analytics Edge Connectors provide access between your computer and your data on the web service you connect to. Where possible, Analytics Edge Connectors use the latest, most secure connection mechanism available; in most cases, this is using Oauth2 access tokens. All of your credentials or access tokens are encrypted using industrial-strength AES encryption and are stored locally on your computer. Your credentials grant access to Analytics Edge (the product), but are never shared with Analytics Edge Inc. (the company). They never leave your computer — they are saved in configuration files, not in your workbooks. You are free to share report spreadsheets without security concerns.
Data Transfer Security
All data and queries are transferred directly between the web service and your computers using the most secure mechanism provided by the service; in most cases this is SSL-encrypted HTTPS connections. At no time is your data exposed or available to Analytics Edge (the company).
Analytics Edge products are available in free and licensed versions. A free trial period is provided for in licensed product. During the free period, we track several user interface interactions for product improvement purposes. At no time does this tracking record, expose, or access your credentials, queries or the data returned.
When you register Analytics Edge products, you may provide an email address to obtain a registration key. When you purchase a full license, you may also provide an email address. Analytics Edge (the company) uses these email addresses to contact you regarding your use of the product. We will not share it with anyone, nor will we use it for any other purpose without your prior approval (subject to legal disclosure requirements).
